Sope Mame Diarra Group's story

The "Sope Mame Diarra" group comprises six women, all of whom are married. They live in the same area and support each other in their income-generating activities, which consist essentially of selling fabric, clothing, sheets, and bracelets. They buy their goods together in the capital and divide up the merchandise according to each woman's capacity. They then present their goods to their customers, who pay them at the end of the month. This business is very useful to them because it allows them to meet their own needs and support their husbands in taking care of their households. The group leader, in a yellow headscarf, is the mother of four children, three of whom are girls and attend school. She sells children's clothing and earns an income that she uses to pay for the education of her daughters. In order to strengthen their working capital, the group is seeking a loan of 500,000 F to buy clothing, sheets, and "ganila" fabric. Their ambition is to expand their businesses.

In this group: Anta, Anta, Marème, Maguette, Fatou, Fary
